The Xbox Series X has been sent out to many press and streamers, and videos of various Xbox One games running much faster are emerging. With the Xbox Series X launch line-up looking pretty thin, much of the appeal for new console owners will come from revisiting older titles and seeing how the new system’s features enhances them.
Now, thanks to one streamer’s video of The Witcher 3 running on a Series X, we can check out the advantages of super-boosted loading times. YouTuber rubhen925 has shared nearly two hours of footage, showing the game running on the new system. While the full video is worth a watch, the most exciting part, funnily enough, comes when fast travel is used.
The GIF from the video below happens just past the 1 hour 14 minute mark in the video, and it shows what happens when you fast travel. There’s no loading screen now–in fact, the environment loads in so fast that it kind of looks like a glitch.
It’s a bit uglier than a loading screen, perhaps, but it’s much more convenient.
The Witcher 3 is coming to Xbox Series X and PS5 with an improved next-gen edition. It’ll feature ray tracing for the first time.
Developer CD Projekt Red’s next game is Cyberpunk 2077, which was recently delayed into December thanks to some issues with the PS4/Xbox One builds.
